#PRO Tip: The part no one ever tells you about…be patient.
With that said, have Plan B ready. You should always know the substitute.
Track it, track it, track it“The super duper important part”
Goal setting. Where do they meet, where do they overlap, how do they differ?
Bad assumptions happen in the absence of goal setting
Best practice:Cover your ass       Repeat after me: Ranges are my friend. Ranges are my friend.
How do we track these effectively?As marketers we must embrace multi-touch attribution.

  • Great share Joanna! I'll have to keep these in mind when working on scaling my business.

    Gurbaksh Chahal once said to me, ' Pivot if you think it can’t scale.' Which oddly enough is what SEO Moz seems to have done with transitioning from Consulting to Software. Something I think other people should keep in mind.
